November Weigh In

I haven't been weighing myself lately because I knew I was bloated and I haven't been able to exercise due to being sick. I have also been reaching for more than my share of comfort food... So I wasn't feeling my best and didn't really want to worry about what the scale said when I was feeling crappy enough. Yesterday was the 1st of November and I thought I might have a look at the scales and see how I am tracking (I skipped my October weigh in because I was in Bali).

November 1st Weigh In: 80.3 kilos (176.5 lbs)
Weight Lost In Sept/Oct: 5.2 kilos (11.5 lbs)
Total Weight Lost:
49.4 kilos (108.5 lbs)

The most exciting part? I am just a whisker away from being in the 70's and also having lost a total of 50 kilos. Until recently I had never even weighed in the 80's, so being in the 70's would be completely surreal to me. Prior to having a lap band my goal was always just to get under 100 kilos and now here I am less than a kilo away from the 70's. I mean I have friends I would call 'thin' who weigh in the 70's (granted they are taller than me).

I am not actively dieting at the moment or obsessing about numbers on the scale, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't be freaking awesome to get into the 70's. I think there is a possibility I could cry when I do actually see a number starting with a 7 on the scales.

Stay tuned!

  1. That is a fantastic effort! I can only hope to have results similar to yours! I have the similar goal of getting under 100 then under 80 is kind of like my ultimate goal!

  2. Oh wow, that's awesome! I seriously cannot wait until I have your kind of weight loss.

    Thanks for the link! And actually, there was kind of a mix-up (my husband was trying to help me fix something)--could you actually link it to www.daegufatty.blogspot.com?

  3. 50kg is seriously awesome! Well done!!

    It must feel amazing to sit back, and think about the fact that you have lost so much weight!

  4. Way to go on the weightloss. I think I like your idea about once a month weigh ins. I might just start that myself..

  5. I did... I cried.. it was an amazing moment and it will be for you too! Cant wait to hear youve hit 79.9! A day to celebrate :)

  6. Wow!! That's amazing-- you're doing so well, even with the sickness and the no exercise and the many cocktails in Bali! It must feel amazing xoxo

  7. Dash hit the nail on the head. I absolutely can't wait to see you hit the 70's and I think I'll have a little cry for you.

    70's to me, regardless of height is thin. You are thin darling! Sure there are people that are thinner, but you are thin!

  8. AMAZING as always!

    I remember going crazy over being in the 80s, let alone the 70s! Every time I stand on the scales and see anything other than 112 I'm a happy little vegemite.

    Btw, per your earlier post. I moved cities last year and have met lots of new people. They think I'm just a skinny person - someone made a comment about me always having a great figure. I laughed and laughed.

  9. Wow! That is amazing! 50kgs down is such a huge achievement. Good luck on getting to see a 7 on the scale. V. http://the-babbling-bandit.blogspot.com/

  10. Well done. Rooting for you to break into the 70's.
